We took Toots to the pool for the first time this past Saturday. Our new neighborhood has a hugeeee community pool and it was open for the first time this weekend. It was pretty crowded, but there was still plenty of room and a great pool that started out very shallow for us to be able to sit with him in. Here's some pictures:
Showing off his new shades for the occassion (they are Thomas the Train). He's too cool.

Trying out the water for the first time....He was actually really tired and was fine when Daddy was holding him on his leg and he was in the water, but when he was put in the water on his own (like below) it resulted in crying.
After a 20 minute nap, he went back in the pool for a little more and was okay with being set in the water on his own. We only stayed about an hour because we didn't want him to be out in the heat too long. The pool will open up daily next week, so I plan on taking him some during the day during the week when it won't be as crowded. I'd say it was a success, though, because he didn't hate it :)
